senate majority leader harry reid drew attention to budget cuts and how they could impact military training like that taking place at hawthorne. >> it's just not appropriate, mr. president, that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary. these men and women, our marines were training there in hawthorne and with the sequester it's going to cut the stuff back. >> some marine officials chafed at reid's commence. his spokesman clarified his remarks saying the idea of senator reid thinks that the hawthorne tragedy has anything to do with the sequester is absurd, shepard. >> shepard: jennifer griffin at the pentagon now. the horrible plot at the university of central florida in orlando. tonight, it is very clear the plan was for another virginia tech. murder on a scale that would forever change one of the biggest universities in america. you see, the student behind the foiled murder rampage wrote a checklist. and the last line "give them hell." just one of the many new details that police revealed today. there is a video from a camera that one officer had mounted on his u

be exactly the right decision to then send it back to harry reid and president obama and ask if harry reid and president obama are willing to try to shut the government down in order to insist that obama care be fully funded now, even though it could well push us into a recession. >> now, this is the keynote speaker. and still wanting to get rid of obama care. >> yeah, it would seem insane that ted cruz is fighting for the path. he is trying to bring back the mccarthy era in his general ramblings on capitol hill. that would seem crazy. if paul ryan, supposedly the most serious men in washington who all the belt take seriously, wasn't doing the same thing in his budget, trying to get rid of the affordable health care act, which is signed off on. they are stuck in the past, not able to accept the results of the last election. you know who would love it if they tried to shut the government down? democrats. they are digging this party's grave and i don't think they even know it. >> we'll have to leave it there. joy reid and dana milbank, thank you both for your time. >>> it's a historic day at

, the constituents at home. there are plenty of democrats including majority leader harry reid who have the same basic concerns, and there is a concern about the gun laws like the assault weapons ban would be effective so that you will see the republicans will try to mostly strengthen the mental health aspects of this problem, and they will see, and watch very carefully to see what senators like alaskan senator mark begich and arkansas senator pryor and louisiana senator mary landrieu, and if they don't go towards the gun control side, then the republicans certainly won't. >> and jason, talk about that, because for harry reid, does it cause problem for him being in the committee and he being a gun owner and he being the senator from nevada, will that cause difficulty for him? >> i live in texas, and even here, a huge majority of people are here for closing the gun show loophole and bringing it into the fold here and half of the voters here in texas support banning the assault weapons. voters are speaking out in increasing numbers about doing something about this, taand the new york times is righ

through harry reid. >> this is what liberals want to know is not when hair arery reid is going to move because harry reid is not a profiles in courage leadership kind of guy. he is a will of his caucus kind of guy. he stepped out in front very few times. generally what he does is reflect the general consensus of his caucus. if he is going to move and take a chance it has to be because the president is pushing him, pushing him, pushing him and we heard from senator feinstein last week the president they believe that nothing is going to happen unless he gets out in front and leads on this. remember, this is one of the three gs for liberals in the second obama term. gay marriage. global warming and guns. and these are the three biggest issues for the left and if the president looks like he is dragging his feet on this they will get cranky and then to take us back to senator king's point they will be less inclined to do something that they have already shown very little in krieneation to do which is to address the long-term drivers of the debt meddeficit particularly did i. >> shannon: sen

of day. today democrats dropped a key provision from their gun bill the assault weapons ban because harry reid said it didn't have the votes to pass. senator dianne feinstein who introduced the ban said it this way. i cannot fight the nra. the nra spends unlimited sums backed by the gun manufacturer who are craven in my view. i don't know what we can done other than drafting a bill. in asking for support and enabling something to pass in the senate now i could put a hold on the whole package but i'm not going to do that. so instead the rest of the gun safety bill will go forward without the assault weapons ban. of course there is a possibility it could be attached to a later bill but certainly there is not a guarantee. gun safety is fast becoming a low priority in washington. and another is immigration. john boehner praised the bipartisan house group working on immigration legislation. >> there are a lot of issues in here that have to be dealt with and i think what this bipartisan group came up with is frankly a pretty responsible solution. >> michael: sounds like progress but of course t

problem for the president to say there is really no great urgency to balancing the budget or harry reid saying there is no rush too deal with entitlements this year. but for house democrat to double down on spending stupid by pushing more stupid spending, well, you got to wonder. but this is true, they want more stimulus about $200 million more, who can blame them, clearly none of their leaders are trying to stop them or remotely discourage them. and members of pear are not block -- of their party are not exactly blocking them. i don't think their intention was to encourage this. they run for a immediate nicotine spending rush any time they can get it, they d got it,n them for pushing it, it on us if we allow it david walker said stimulus is not the solution, he is so sick of watching washington dance around this issue. he alone with alice rivlin, head vice chair making this video to sort of get the message to young and older americans alike, the can kicks back. but you know we're just, still kicking the can, what is going on. >> it would be nice if we had a presidential budget, the hou
